the problem
Nature and Context

Most resources about businesses have little to no information about how accessible they are. Do they have multiple handicap parking spaces? How many accessible bathroom stalls? Are there ramps? Removable seating? All these questions and more could be reported and mapped via crowdsourcing and encouraged business participation.
